Section 933 Excluded Income from Puerto Rico
Per IRC section 933, a U.S. citizen who is a bona fide resident of Puerto Rico during the entire taxable year is generally required to file a U.S. Income tax return if they
- receive income from sources outside Puerto Rico, or
- receive income as a civilian or military employee of the U.S. Government in Puerto Rico.
The income received from Puerto Rican sources is not subject to U.S. income tax, however a return containing both exempt and non-exempt income will need to allocate part of the standard deduction or itemized deductions, whichever is used, to the exempt income. Refer to IRS Publication 1321 for the instructions on calculating the allocation as well as determining if a return must be filed.
